THE STRUGGLE WAS REAL, UNTIL TODAY!
I’ll take the example of Kodak Portra because that’s the one that causes me the most trouble.

Sometimes it’s just a tool for small enhancements, and sometimes it’s used to create a work of art and lead you into a world of imagination.

But all these images have something in common: the amount of skill and time invested in their creation, as well as the impressive result in each of them.

VSCO (Visual Supply Co) opened an office in New York in December 2015, along with the free studio. Only one year after opening, they decided to shut it down. They say the reason is an attempt to centralize the staff at the company’s office in Oakland, where they have the main headquarters.
This decision didn’t go without consequences, at least for the employees – VSCO laid off the complete staff from the New York office.
